Our Employee Spotlight for November is a hard-working team lead, who encourages and motivates her teammates through leading by example and offering a helping hand. Congrats and Thank You are in order to our Dealership Parts Team Lead, Sara George! 

Sara worked in our Service Department back in 2017 before having her son, Gavin. After some time away, she came back to work in our Parts Department in November of 2021, and we couldn’t be happier about having her back!

Her outstanding performance in her position as a Parts Stocker and Picker led her to her current role as the Dealership Parts Team Lead. Sara spends her workdays locating new parts, ensuring that processes are being fulfilled, training employees, and answering questions. When asked what advice she would give to anyone interested in working in the Parts Department, she said that “there’s always somewhere else to look” and that it helps to be good with numbers.

The comradery, flexible schedule, and people are some of the things that Sara enjoys the most about working at Berger. There is an important work/life balance that she feels is encouraged and she appreciates that she can joke around with her coworkers while still getting the job done.

Sara would like to give a shoutout to Chase Scarberry, her number 2, her partner in crime! She is very grateful to have a coworker and friend that she can rely on to help her get the job done. Sara also enjoys working with people in other departments. Troy DeJonge, Wholesale Parts Consultant, has been especially awesome to work with! He always has a smile on his face, he’s understanding if there’s an issue locating parts on the shelf, and he knows that the parts department is doing their best.

A work-life balance is important to Sara. Spending time with her family and son are some of her favorite things to do. A fun fact you may not know about her is that in her downtime she enjoys getting back to her country roots. Some of her hobbies include shooting, stacking wood, and enjoying time outside with her son!

In nominating Sara as the spotlight, the Parts Leadership Team had a long list of reasons why they chose to highlight Sara this month. Her dedication to working hard and helping others combined with her genuine care and empathy for her teammates, makes it clear that Sara embodies our cultural behaviors and values in every way possible.

Please join us in congratulating Sara George on being our November Spotlight! We’re so grateful to have you on our team.
